    Talking Need suggestions

    I have to have surgery on my arm soon..blech. I won't be able to lift anything over 10 pounds for 2 loooooong months. How the heck am I gonna get Zoey in bed with me? I tried those kitchen step stools and she looks at me like I am nuts. Asked hubby to build her steps, but he looked at me like I had an alien bursting out of my chest or something. I don't think that is all that much to ask, but apparently he is more worried about piddly stuff like cleaning and cooking?!?! Suggestions welcome!!

    If the steps don't work out, can't your hubby pick Zoey up and put her in bed?

    We use a cat-stool. It's covered in carpet, and it's only a foot tall. I even bought a second one for the couch after I had back surgery. Lupe has used this since she was a pup, so she's comfy and (I think) likes the carpet factor. Good luck with everything!!

    Hubby works midnights so he is gone when I go to bed. I will google the steps and see what I can come up with. Would be so much cheaper for him to build them but hey if he won't help me.... He also told me last night there are support groups for people like me

    I tried the steps you get at pet stores and they didn't work so well even for my Boston so couldn't imagine a bully using them very easily. We ended up building a box that we covered in carpet so the dog could jump onto the top of the box and then up onto the bed. We made sure is was wide enough so that he could fully jump up and then jump on the bed. The store bought ones I found the issue is the steps are so tiny.
